The view from Kashirskoye highway of the Cathedral of the Holy Vivifying Trinity framed by trees in summer. The beautiful temple with impressive blue domes was constructed at Borisovo Ponds in Moscow in 2001-2004 to commemorate 1000 anniversary of the baptism of Holy Russia. It is one dome cross-shaped church built by project of Vladimir Kolosnitsyn in Byzantine Revival style of architecture. All its domes (including side chapels and bell tower) are painted in blue color – symbol of Mother of God and Angel’s Powers. Exterior of the church is decorated with two-headed eagles from 4 corners and adorned with ornamented tiles from porcelain, painted in gold by craftsmen from St. Petersburg.
